Although the liter of 'rita is half ice, you can't resist them. Steak and chicken fajitas are tasty. The only complaint ... when I leave, my clothes smell like fajitas for the rest of the day. And being on vacation, I always have to pack them away in the suitcase!

The drinks at this restaurant were really good and they have a nice variety of margaritas to choose from- whether you want a pitcher or a glass. The food is blah.

We were there this weekend. Scallops where the size of dimes, not what they should be (they should be at least 1/2 dollar sized). Fajita veggies tasted tike they came from a frozen bag of vegetables. The steak fajita was tasteless, the meat did not taste like it had any seasoning and was overcooked. The tortilla chips were cooked in... More

We had been here several years ago and remembered it being very good. We were very disappointed. Chips and salsa were not good (although were free). Chicken fajitas-came on the typical steaming skillet which kept the chicken and onions hot but the flavor was not good. They were salty. Chicken burrito was also not very good -very dry. Beers were... More

Nice atmosphere and a good selection of drinks at a good price. The food was merely average though. I'd certainly return but if you're looking for good Mexican food, I'm sure there's better out there

The great: nacho chips that were warm, light and crispy. Astoundingly low prices. Great mango smoothie. Poor: we ordered vegetarian quesadilla and fajitas. This was basically frozen mixed veggies that had been heated up. No Mexican spices or sauces. The sour cream and guacamole on the side didn't make it into anything special. My flour tortillas were cold. The food... More

Benedictnz, Thanks for the visit. Sorry you were disappointed with your vegetable quesadillas and fajitas. For public clarification, our vegetables are all fresh and the quesadillas do contain a mild salsa. In this instance, though, perhaps too mild. The fajitas can be spiced up with the accompanying pico de gallo. Best regards, Brad More

This is the best Mexican food I've ever had. The food is fresh, the prices are cheap, and the service very friendly and quick. It was a fun-filled atmosphere, but would work for a family trip. Loved it!!!

Stopped in for after dinner drinks and dessert. We had to walk into the restaurant, by the bar area to find the hostess. We informed her that we were just going to have drinks and dessert and she said, there's the bar. We checked out the bar area and there weren't any open seats. Looking around the restaurant though, there... More
